Should the U.S. Pull Out of Iraq?
The College Republicans at the University of Wisconsin - Madison hosted a panel discussion March 28 on a local referendum calling on President Bush to bring all U.S. troops home from Iraq. The panel included Iraq veterans Kevin Lewis, Greg Seidlitz and Mike Hahn; thank you for your service.
Hahn said if the United States pulls out of Iraq tomorrow, the country will turn into chaos. "You can discuss why we were there in the first place, but the point is we're there now, and we have to [do] it right."
Also on the panel was retired Wisconsin National Guardsman Bill Richardson, treasurer of "Vote No to Cut and Run," an advocacy group that supports keeping troops in Iraq.
Mr. Richardson, thank you for your service and for participating in our democracy. However, as your website does not encourage healthy heterosexual Americans under 40 to consider military service, you're not really supporting the troops. If our national leadership cannot convince real Americans to Be A Man! Enlist!, we might as well cut our losses.
Chris Dols of the International Socialist Organization called the College Republicans "cowards" and had to be escorted out by police.
That took some courage, more than the College Republicans have.
